    I'm pretty sure anyone here who has a ps3 will know about the latest 4.20 update it released last night. you know, the one that wont let you get online til you update it?(wonder who the genius was behind THAT). well every time i try the damn thing it stalls at 0 and then a message pops up: "Error occured during the download operation. A connection to the server cannot be established(80710723). My internet and online connections were doing perfectly fine until this update shit started. anyone with a ps3 having a similar problem?

    Have you tried downloading it to a USB and loading it from there instead?

    I had the same problem with my PSP. I fixed it by disconnecting it from the internet and turning it off before trying it again.

    That's odd, worked perfectly fine for me.
    But yeah, listen to Sol Fury. The USB update usually works fine. Though I'd try the internet update again, maybe there was a problem.

    I had a bit of a problem connecting to my wireless IP, but other than that, the download was fast.

    My only problem was that I had to wait 7 minutes until I could start my game.

    Um, every time there is an update for PS3 you can't get online until installing it. Not just this one...

    It is the biggest downfall of the console...next to having architecture developers seem to dislike. Updating, installing, updating and installing again takes for ever be it a game or system.

    You got 30 mins spare to play a game, the ps3 will make sure you waste most of that updating :(
